Updated Web Browsers: Which One Works Best?

Though the Opera browser has been around for years, it has never achieved mainstream popularity despite a solid array of built-in features. If I couldn't use Firefox add-ons to mimic some of Opera's features--such as mouse gestures for moving backward and forward through my browsing history--I'd likely go with this well-made alternative.

A Speed Dial start page provides quick access--with page thumbnails--to your favorite destinations. You can switch downloadable themes without having to restart the browser, and add "widgets" such as calendars and clocks that display outside the browser.

Throw in some other useful features, such as a built-in RSS reader and site-specific settings for using cookies or Javascript, and you have a commendable browser. The company also offers a version of its browser for mobile phones, Opera Mini 4.
